And so, Qi Huan hadn’t stayed at Mo Ye’s place for long before being captured by Mo Yu and brought to Mo Mansion. It was quite a considerable distance between Mo Mansion and Qian Long Mountain. It roughly took them more than ten days even if they were traveling at the fastest speed. In any case, she had no hope of escape.
Fortunately, although Mo Ye’s father’s temper was not very good, his brother was a very gentle person, even his voice was very soft, as if he was afraid of frightening Qi Huan. Therefore, these days, she simply stayed by Xing Huang9Xing HuangLittle Huang’s side to prevent Mo Yu from being unhappy and hurting her.
Along their journey, Qi Huan finally realized the Mo Family’s status in the Heavenly Devil Realm. When other devils saw Mo Yu, they would all lay on the ground and bowed their heads. The expressions on their faces were absolutely reverent, showing a kind of respect that stemmed from the bottom of their heart. In the bloody and raging devil world, there were people who were so respected. Qi Huan was really dumbfounded by this realization.
The mansion was located in the capital city of the Heavenly Devil Realm. Before seeing the scale of the Mo Mansion, Qi Huan thought that Ming Huo Palace, the place where Ming Huo lived, was exaggeratedly big. It wasn’t until she entered the Mo Mansion that she felt that she was really inexperienced.
The Mo Mansion basically occupied half of the capital. In fact, there were only three people that were the true Mo Family members. Mo Ye never lived in the Mo Mansion, only Mo Yu and Xing Huang lived there. The rest were the guards, servants, and other concubines who were given to Mo Yu by others.
After entering the mansion, Qi Huan was really not sure how to feel when she saw nearly a thousand women on both sides of the door. They were all very beautiful. One man with thousands of women, even emperors in the moral world were not this exaggerating.
When Qi Huan followed them in, most of those concubines were looking at Mo Yu, some of them had eyes on Xing Huang, all of which were extremely obsessed. Of course, there were also very few people staring at Qi Huan, but the way they looked at men and women was obviously different. Their eyes at Qi Huan were very cold, so cold that she didn’t even need to look at them to feel their coldness biting into her skin. She really didn’t know who did she provoke. If she really did something and was hated by others, then she wouldn’t feel too bad about it, but now, she was hated by other people even before she did anything. She felt so wronged!
“Bring her to go to the inner courtyard.” When they all returned to the hall to rest, Mo Yu glared at Qi Huan, and ordered the chief of the Mo Mansion who had been following them.
The chief was a young woman with cold eyes, especially when she was staring at Qi Huan. It seems that she really doesn’t want to see me, Qi Huan thought.
“Father…” Xing Huang’s tone was somewhat hesitant after hearing Mo Yu’s order.
“Hmph, don’t kill her, just torture her.” Mo Yu said in front of Qi Huan. Unexpectedly, she was happy when she heard it. No one dared to trouble her for so many years! Torture her? She really didn’t believe that anyone in the inner courtyard had the ability to torture her.
She had always been the one to toss others, causing them to rather die than to suffer. She had never been tossed by anyone before, she would really like to see them try this time.
Xing Huang glanced at Qi Huan with some worry, and then sighed. The order had already been made, he could no longer persuade his father, unless Mo Ye was around, no one dared to disobey his father’s orders. Although he was also Mo Yu’s biological son, Xing Huang knew in his heart that his father loved him less than Mo Ye.
And so, Qi Huan lived in the inner courtyard from that day on. She realized that the so-called inner courtyard turned out to be Mo Yu’s harem, no wonder Mo Yu said he wanted to torture her. It was because he knew how terrifying the women here were.
Since stepping into the inner courtyard, she did not leave the house at all. Although her housekeeper was not really polite, the room she assigned to Qi Huan was still decent, at least there was a bed and bedding. There wasn’t any big problem except that she could see the moon in the sky when she lay down.
There was just a big hole above her head, not a big deal. When she was hunted down in the mortal world, she had slept in a muddy swamp for several days to hide from her hunters, and she had spent days with mosquitoes.
Probably because of Qi Huan’s honesty, for three days in a row, no one came to trouble her. She was happy but she had nothing to do all day, except for practicing cultivation and staring at Little Yin.
Her carrots were all ruined by Mo Yu, out of anger. Although this wasn’t her fault, Little Yin was still angry, it didn’t care whose fault it was. As a result, sometimes when Qi Huan woke up in the middle of the night, she would suddenly find a snake with its mouth opened, on top of her head, drooling at her. Fortunately, she had spent so many years with this snake, so she had almost gotten used to it, at most she would just turn around and continue to sleep.
Qi Huan also discovered that after her ascension, she seemed to become more diligent. She had never practiced cultivation so diligently before. But at the moment she was only absorbing ling qi in this area, not really practicing cultivation yet as she had to wait for Mo Ye to return the other half of her book to her. When the two met last time, Qi Huan was only thinking about Mo Ye, totally forgetting that she still had to practice.
Three days later, the women in the inner courtyard probably had enough observation, so they were all gearing up to deal with their “newcomer”.
Although Mo Yu never told the women in the inner courtyard that Qi Huan was his new concubine, all the women just assumed that she was a newcomer. Perhaps it was traditional that when every beauty was first sent to the inner courtyard, they would inevitably suffer some torture. However, they really went overboard dealing with Qi Huan this time.
One night three days later as Qi Huan was sleeping soundly under her blanket, she suddenly smelled a strong fragrance. When she slightly opened her eyes, she saw a figure flashing by the window. She thought that sleeping gas was only found in the mortal world but it seemed that it also existed in the devil world.
Moreover, this sleeping gas was mixed with a lot of stimulants. Qi Huan felt her body become a little warm so she quickly mobilized her ling qi and introduced the gas into her dantian.
Dantian was the most vulnerable thing for every noble cultivator, but Qi Huan was the opposite of that, because she had four monsters living in her dantian, and those four little creatures had become more and more fond of gnawing her thunder recently. Every day, they would lie down on her eight trigrams, each holding a piece of cloud and nibbling on it happily.
Therefore, Qi Huan was not worried. After absorbing the somewhat poisonous sleeping gas into her body, she let the four creatures eat it. They didn’t really exist physically so they could eat the gas without any harm.
After introducing the gas to her dantian, Qi Huan closed her eyes and pretended to sleep. After a while, she heard her door being pushed open softly. Someone was coming in.
Qi Huan continued to lie on her arms, listening to the slight noise coming from the house. The footsteps were getting closer and closer to her bed, and then an unpleasant smell was introduced into her nose. She frowned. It was obvious that it was not a woman who broke into her room. First, they gave me an aphrodisiac, then they brought a man into my room, these women are really daring.
When Qi Huan could feel the man’s rapid breathing near her cheeks, she suddenly opened her eyes wide. The man totally didn’t expect her to be wide awake especially after the special sleeping gas. He was completely stunned at this scene.
Qi Huan squinted at the man for a long time, and she finally recognized his face. It seemed that this man was a guard in the Mo Mansion. When she entered the mansion that day, he was guarding the door.
“You?” The man who was startled by Qi Huan, was just about to run away when he suddenly felt a heavy breath behind him. He turned his head and saw a giant snake staring at him with its mouth wide open. Little Yin’s saliva mixed with venom dripped on his shoulders, and soon the armour on his shoulders was corroded completely, and then gradually penetrated into his skin and bones.
“Ahhh!” Heart-piercing screams sounded from Qi Huan’s room, awakening everyone in the Mo Mansion.
Qi Huan waved her hand to Little Yin, “Hurry up and find a place to dispose of the body. Also, remember to brush your teeth before making yourself big next time.” Although it was normal for monsters to have bad breath, Little Yin’s breath was really not refreshing.
Little Yin glared at Qi Huan dissatisfiedly. Then, it bit the guard, who intended to rape Qi Huan, with its pointed fangs directly inserting into his lower abdomen. According to Qi Huan’s guess, even if a devil’s survivability was extremely strong, this one bite had probably caused half of his life.
Little Yin’s poison was not ordinary snake venom. At that time, Qi Huan used its venom to infiltrate a cultivator who was going through the dujie stage. As a result, it only took roughly ten or more seconds, and those who were still alive one minute ago, were immediately corroded, even their souls were completely corroded.
Fortunately, Mo Ye said that Flying Snakes were basically extinct in this world, so there weren’t any Flying Snakes even in the immortal world. Otherwise, mere human beings wouldn’t stand a chance if there were a few more such terrifying creatures.
In fact, Qi Huan’s thoughts were a bit redundant because ordinary Flying Snakes had no venom at all, and it wouldn’t grow a pair of dragon horns. Little Yin belonged to a mutant species, that was why it had grown to its terrifying appearance now. Anyway, the stronger Little Yin was, the more guaranteed her safety was. This inhuman snake, except for being good to her little fox, treated everyone as if everyone owed it money. It wouldn’t listen to anyone except the little fox.
